Canterbury’s Safer Streets Team will be out in the city centre between 10am and 4pm on Saturday 29 July 2017 promoting road safety.


They will be joined by officers from Kent Special Constabulary, members of the Kent Volunteer Police Cadets and representatives from Kent Community Speedwatch.

The Safer Streets Team is a dedicated team of Police Community Support Officers whose remit is to target the issues that matter most to communities.

Educating the public

Team leader PCSO Gavin Dodwell said: ‘The aim of the day is to educate shoppers and visitors about road safety. We want drivers to stay safe behind the wheel.

‘We will be talking to people about the dangers of speeding, drink driving and using a mobile phone while driving,’ he said.

Speeding concerns

‘The day will also be a good opportunity for anyone with concerns about speeding in their communities to tell us so we can work alongside Kent Community Speedwatch to focus on their areas.’

PCSO Dodwell said the team would also be a point of contact for anyone with concerns or questions about other issues, from antisocial behaviour to crime prevention advice.

Anyone worried about speeding in their communities can also email Canterbury Community Safety Unit at
